Essential Oil Quick Tips – Part 2

In March, I published a blog post that contained several Essential Oil Quick Tips. My original plan was to continually add to that post, but once I got to almost 20 tips and graphics, I thought I better divide them up a little bit. Below you’ll find my Essential Oil Quick Tips Part 2! I hope to publish one Essential Oil Quick Tip blog post a month. Happy learning! P.S. Many of the below oils come in your Premium Starter Kit!! :)

SUPPORT YOUR SKIN: Try adding a drop of Frankincense and/or Lavender to your daily facial moisturizer each morning and/or night to support a looking healthy complexion and work on fine lines and wrinkles.

ADD SOME FLAVOR: Looking to spruce up your water? Add some flavor with 1-2 drops of a citrus Vitality essential oil! Choose from one of these Vitality varieties – Bergamot, Grapefruit, Orange, Tangerine, Citrus Fresh, Lemon, Lime, or Jade Lemon. Yummy!!

FOR THAT TIME OF THE MONTH: Keep an eye out for Dragon Time to be back in stock! This stuff is so comforting and soothing for that time of the month! Add a 1-3 drops to your lower back and/or abdomen throughout the day. To make your bottle last longer, you can dilute it (it is just as effective when diluted). I like adding 10 drops to a 5-ml roller bottle, 20 drops to a 10-ml roller bottle, or 30 drops to a 15-ml bottle. Then fill the rest of the bottle up with carrier oil and roll on those same areas as needed.

BECAUSE LIFE IS GROSS: Thieves is one of my favorite essential oils because it’s super powerful and smells amazing! I use Thieves in a lot of my DIY recipes. I also diffuse it year round and apply it (diluted with carrier oil) to the bottom of my feet every night. During the colder months, I make tea by adding 1 drop Thieves Vitality, 1-2 drops Lemon Vitality, and honey (to taste) to warm water. I also like to add a drop of Thieves Vitality to a capsule (with carrier oil) to support my immune and respiratory system. Top 5 oils for sure!!

FOR PARENTS: ATTENTION PARENTS!! Whether you’ve been taking care of little ones all day, managing end of the day craziness with your kiddos, or running the around in the evening for after school activities, you need STRESS AWAY! Apply to the wrists, forearms, back of the neck, or behind the ears throughout the day or at night when you are winding down. You can also diffuse this blend too….it smells so good!

FOR PEOPLE WHO GET HOT: Need to cool down? Try diluting 1-3 drops of Peppermint essential oil and apply to the back of your neck. You can also make a cooling spray by adding a few drops of Peppermint oil, an optional Tablespoon of witch hazel (to help disperse the oil in the water), and water to a 2 ounce spray bottle. Shake and spritz yourself with it.

FOR MAMA & BABY: Gentle Baby is a great blend to calm both mama and baby. You can diffuse several drops, inhale it directly from the bottle, or apply topically. Applying it to your upper chest could benefit both you and your baby when you are holding your little one.

BEST ADDITIONS TO A VODKA TONIC: Happy Friday!!! One of my favorite weekend cocktails is a vodka tonic with a drop of Grapefruit, Orange, Lemon, or Lime Vitality essential oil. Trust me, you will love this!!

HATE THE SMELL OF AN OIL?: Hate the smell of an essential oil, but know you could benefit from using it? Add a little Orange to it! Seriously… THIS WORKS!! :) I do this with oils like Joy and Vetiver.

Hate-the-Smell-of-an-Oil-blank

SUMMER NIGHT SKIN SOOTHER: When summer finally decides to arrive, try these summer night skin essential oils! Apply a small amount of Lavender and Purification to your ankles, wrists, pant legs, and back of the neck to help enjoy a campfire annoyance free. You can also make an easy to use skin soother roll-on by adding 10-15 drops of each oil to a 10-ml roller bottle. Fill with carrier oil, gently shake, and use to spot soothe areas of the arms, legs, and ankles after sitting outside at night. You’ll end up carrying this roll-on around with you all summer!

TREAT YOURSELF: If you ever want to treat yourself, Melissa and Rose are great essential oils to get! They are great for skin health, and are also uplifting and emotionally balancing. They can also be found in many blends such as White Angelica, Forgiveness, Joy, Envision, and Humility. Melissa is in the ART Cleanser and ART Toner, and Rose makes an awesome addition to my homemade facial serum (mix 1 ounce avocado oil, 1 drop Rose, 1-2 drops Frankincense, and 1-2 drops Myrrh in a glass dropper bottle). The Melissa plants smelled so good at the  Young Living farm in Mona, Utah!

FOR PEOPLE WHO COOK: Have you tried the Vitality essential oil line in your kitchen? My hubby adds a couple drops of Lemongrass Vitality to his Thai soup. You can also add a drop of Basil Vitality to a tomato sauce or substitute a drop of Lemon Vitality for one teaspoon of Lemon juice. The possibilities are endless!!!

For-People-Who-Cook-blank

FOR YOUR SKIN AND HAIR: Cedarwood is one of the most affordable essential oils. It is awesome for your skin (specifically your scalp) and promotes healthy looking hair and hair growth. You can massage Cedarwood into your scalp or add a few drops to your shampoo and conditioner. The warm, calming scent of Cedarwood also makes it a diffuser favorite for winding down at night.
